    Is it Android taking over the world or is it Samsung? A new report from marketing research firm, Localytics, suggests that the Samsung brand is becoming more prolific than Android. In fact, in their recent study, Samsung held 8 of the top 10 Android devices in use globally, and the SGS3 was in the number one spot. Here's a full quote from the Localytics post,

    What do you guys think of this study? Is Samsung getting so big they might start to overshadow everything? Could they pose a serious threat to even Android itself?

    I'd be more likely to go with Samsung if they released a kick-butt device that had a physical keyboard. :nerd:
